Forks of the River Wildlife Management Area. Meet at 8:30am the parking area at the end of McClure Lane. Below are directions from I-40, downtown Knoxville. We will walk the Will Skelton Greenway, a paved greenway along the river for 1 mile. Then we will loop back on several well-maintained gravel roads for a total of 3 miles. This is a relatively open area and will be a great area for birding so bring binoculars. See trail map at
